Top tips to help you reach your target

Promote on social media

Let people know why you have chosen to support us. Do you have a personal connection to the charity, or do you usually volunteer at bucket collections? Or do you just want to do something amazing to keep London’s Air Ambulance flying during?

Ask people to share your page

It is really easy to share your virtual bucket collection page with friends and family, so do encourage them to forward on to their contacts.  They could even set up their own collection if they have been inspired by your amazing efforts to support us!

Keep people updated

Post regularly about your collection and let people know how it’s going. You can post updates directly to your fundraising page.

Set up a group collection with friends, family and colleagues

You can set up a group collection and see who can collect the most or contribute towards a team target.

Make your collection come to life and select a location!

Make your collection come to life by selecting a real-life location – you can post pictures of yourself there - or even create some fantasy pictures.

Thank your supporters

You will be able to create an automatic thank you that is sent to all your donors. We’ve created a thank you template guide, but you can easily write your own personal message instead
